obama and mississippi senator roger wicker have initially tested positive for ricin, a deadly poison. we should point out the initial tests are sometimes inaccurate but they did create an evacuation in the senate today. i want to bring in chief white house correspondent jessica yellin at the white house and chief congressional correspondent dana bash on capitol hill. jessica, let's start with you. what is the white house telling us about this letter to president obama? i know it didn't actually arrive at the white house, but what do we know about the substance in this letter? >> jake, well, we know first of all that they are -- the fbi and the secret service are continuing to investigate and conducting further tests on this letter. they say that they had protocol set up for exactly this kind of incident and this is the exact standard incident that they, you know, protocol they set up after 9/11. the letter contained a message that was parallel to the same message that was in a letter sent to senator wicker. it said, quote, i am -- it said to see a wrong and not expose it is to become a s

the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white house. the u.s. senate held a similar tribute on capitol hill. it is still unclear what impact the boston bombings will have on the immigration debate in congress. but the topic of national security is clearly playing a more prominent role in the discussion. things got tense on capitol hill yesterday when senator chuck schumer sparred republican senator chuck grassley about the future of the legislation. take a look. >> a few ways to improve the bill all for an amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly those who were pointing to what happened. the terrible tragedy in boston as a -- i would say an excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it many months oer years. >> i never said that. >> i didn't say you did, sir. >> i didn't say -- >> i didn't say you did. i don't mean you, mr. grassley. >> mr. chairman, i don't appreciate the senator demeaning the witnesses that have come here. >> earlier, senator patrick leahy who chairs the judiciary committee opened the hearing with some tough
court and the statement taken from him cannot be used against him in that trial. >> while the obama administration has agreed to delay a reading of his miranda rights under a public safety exemption, secretary of defense chuck hagel has not seen evidence to link the bombings to terror groups. scrutiny turns to the fbi who reportedly questioned the older brother tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government. this is so interesting. of russia. the fbi told the a.p. despite interviewing him and relatives they did not find any activity. the agency dropped the ball. richard, i wonder if there is going to be a lot of questions and maybe even hearings out of this or what comes to mind just knowing those basic facts? >> there probably will be hearings of the fbi whether it learned more or could have done more. critics say that is monday morning quarterbacking. it ought to be about what we were talking about, what can we do to prevent or identify young people who are radicalized and how did we respond and how what did we learn about lockdowns. as the military would say it ought not
points on the backs of weary travelers. it should be to fix the problem. look, the obama administration knew about the sequester for months, for months, yet it gave the traveling public and congress only three days' notice before implementing the furloughs that are now being blamed for these delays. the f.a.a. administrator testified before the commerce and appropriations committees last week but made no mention of the magnitude and impact of delays of these furloughs that were just right around the corner. it seems completely bluesable t- completely implausible to me when hthat he didn't mention thn he testified last week. this episode is a perfect illustration of why republicans sought to give the administration even greater flexibility to ensure they could prioritize essential services. one of the areas for which that flexibility was intended was air traffic control. the fact that the administration rejected it strongly suggests a political motive is at play here. i would also remind everyone that this flexibility was reflected by nearly every -- rejected by nearly every democrat in
shrapnel type wounds. the white house is calling it an act of terror. president obama made it clear whoever is responsible will be brought to justice. >> we still not know who did this or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts but make no mistake we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did this. we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> several more unexploded devices were found but there is some confusion as to exactly how many. also police initially said a third explosion happened at the john f. kennedy library but later said it was related to a fire. >> the explosions in boston have prompted concerns hoff of homeland security and have affected air travel around the country -- >> several flights have landed at reagan national from boston this evening. they are -- we also are noticing that the passengers are speaking in shock and disbelief about the explosions. there have been delays all over the country. >> logan airport had tweeted that the f.a.a. is
and evidence collects teams have been brought in from new york. at the white house president obama vowed it will be a swift and thorough search for whomever planted the device. >> anyresponsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> reporter: police questioned man who was injured and being treated in a boston hospital. the investigators say he's not considered a suspect nora person of interest. and so far police are still not commenting on the specific aspects of their investigation. however, we do know they spent seven hours in revere, massachusetts. not too far from where we stand right now. and going through an apartment building. they were seen bringing out evidence bags to their cars p however, no arrests were made. th charisma loan. now back to you. >>> we are learning more this morning about the little boy who may be the youngest victim to lose his life in yesterday's attack. this is 8 year old martin richard. our sister station in boston is reporting that martin was watching his father finish the race when he was killed in that blast. his father is suffering a severe br

right now, wolf, is a letter addressed to president obama that contained a suspicious substance and that's all that we're being told, was intercepted at an offsite mail processing facility. this is a mail facility run by the secret service where they get all the mail addressed to the white house. and they check it for this very reason, to screen it, to do scientific tests to make sure it's safe to come here. it had a suspicious substance in it, we are told, wolf, by a law enforcement source that there are similarities to the letter sent to senator wicker. what exactly does that mean i've asked my sources, so far, wolf, inconclusive at this point. we do know there were some marks, i guess you could say identifying marks in the wicker letter, a postmark from memphis, tennessee. there was no return sender. we don't know if that nor the message included in the letter to senator wicker if that bears the similarity, but we are being told that there are similarities. so it certainly makes you wonder if it could have been sent from the same person or if they think -- if authorities think it is.
. as president obama has said, the f.b.i. is investigating this as an act of terrorism. and the full force of the federal government will support the response and the investigation. there is no current indication to suggest the attack was indicative of a broader plot but out of caution, we continue to keep in place enhanced security measures, both seen and unseen in coordination with the federal, state and local partners.

you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very
review board. clearly even john kerry is not confident in the obama administration's versions of the verns -- events. kerry promised the committee that he would clear the air, in his words, though he also repeatedly used the phrase that clears the air needs to be done so we can move on to far more important issues. and i am so grateful to secretary kerry for taking that position. we do need to get to the truth. dead d at benghazi, the americans cry out for truth. hose who were harmed and hurt, americans there deserve the truth. opefully we will get that. mr. speaker, with so much suffering and anguish right now in america, it is still the greatest nation in the history of the world. and may god guide the leadership in this country, that we don't drop the ball and fail on our watch. that we show ourselves to be worthy recipients of the gifts of liberty given to us by prior nerations, all coming as the founders noted as a gift from god. ith that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the chair will entertain a motion to adjourn

's what we all want to moment dan was a u.s. secret service agent who walked ahead of president obama during "the nine" inaugural parade and he knows what it takes to secure this type of situation. dan, that's what people want to know. how? how could this happen? >> good question. i think everybody is assuming, though, that these bombs were planted yesterday when they, in fact exploded and the event happened. that may not be the case. i don't know that for a fact, but what concerned the secret service and me specifically when i was there and we would organize the parade route for the president was not a device trying to come in that day. we knew we would be able to intercept it, but a device that was preplanted. and that, unfortunately, may be an avenue they may have to pursue investigatively. >> brian: from what you can tell, from what we know, this saudi national is a person of interest in the hospital right now who we've gone through his apartment. how unusual is it for the bomber, who is not a homicide bomber, to be a victim? evidently he had burns on him and smelled like gun powd
